Insanity, Asylum or T25?

MR and Shaun T

The Three faces of Shaun T.  How do you choose who you want to join each morning for the next couple of months?  As a graduate of each of the programs, I recommend doing each program at least once.  They are all effective in getting you the results you desire whether you are limited in time to workout or are an athlete in training.

Insanity – The Asylum Review

“The work does not start until you’re tired!”  This mantra helped me get through 30 days of Insanity: The Asylum.  This workout will require sheer determination and a will to succeed.  I did it.  I can now call myself an athlete.

“He who is not everyday conquering some fear has not learned the secret of life.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Before I started my 30-day Asylum training, I had this notion of getting super fit and I wanted to ‘Get Shredded.”  I set a lofty weight loss goal and knew that if I followed the 30 days, I would achieve it.

Insanity Review

I’m a huge fan the Beachbody Insanity program because if you commit to get uncomfortable, follow the nutrition guide and do not give up, there is no way you will fail.  It didn’t just help me get the body I wanted, it helped me become a better runner and ultimately was a key factor in helping me qualify for the Boston Marathon.

INSANITY is NOT for the faint of heart or for those who don’t want to sweat. This program is high intensity total body conditioning and will challenge anyone, regardless of fitness level.
This is what I LOVED about Insanity! I started the program with a pretty solid cardio base. I’m very active and was running regularly before I started. I love a challenge and I LOVE to sweat. Even the warm up and cardio recovery days were hard in my opinion.
